If ever music was made for the throttle pogo Killing Kuddles realise it with their foot to floorboard freneticism, which can’t but have you minded of CBGBS ’75-78. The abandonment and free-form thought of the creations, which reflect of a world in which they find much to disagree is directly hurled though the speakers and in the music you hear pulsating around the room.

No matter how much you move everything out-of the way, you will still crash into something in a wild sense of oblivion. If you are still supine after hitting play, I think you are probably reading the wrong website and the excitement of a weather forecast may be more appropriate.

Disparaging bass throws itself around the walls, whilst a scatter of percussion fires shots around the head as a basic chord structure on the guitar expresses all that is needed and the vocal leaves palpable traces of phlegm in the eardrums – what more does music need?

Mister Tang

Cast aside formalities, Mister Tang create music that is straight from the hip. Not seeking to provide technicalities, the trio is able to provide the listener with an earthy realism that gives the sounds an immediate connection. During the couple of years of their existence they have naturally gained a confidence and more defined sound in which they excel, though haven’t lost the initial zest as distorted fuzz recoils around the room.

Mister Tang have honed their craft through live performance growing an expanding loyal fan-base and their music which transcends national boundaries deserves of even broader recognition. The tightness of the tracks gives the music a thumping concentration that buffers its way into the brain.

An early EP has been followed by two singles, the last back in April (all of which are available on bandcamp). I look forward to hearing more of Mister Tang and hope they are considering putting out a full-length for those of us not in the vicinity.
